End Table Redo

I'm linking this to Shabby Nest's Frugal Friday!
I found this little guy at my new favorite thrift store...

I'm not liking the color, but I'm loooooving the lines

So I sanded him down

Sprayed him with a coat of white spraypaint, just for a base

And then painted him with interior paint in white. (Not pictured)

Then I took these stencils and using a silver/grey (grey,gray?) paint, I made him pretty

I bought a new bauble knob from Lowes and stuck that on there.

And now I cannot get enough of my table!!! I love love love it!! SQUEEE!

GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I always spell it "gray", however I think that's the non-American way hehe

Thanks!! lol, I know I really really don't understand the difference between the two!

Diddley said...

I think the spelling is a regional thing. For instance the 'colour' of your 'grey' may be a bit more blue than the color of my gray. *Rolls eyes*

YOU HAVE A CRAFT BLOG!!!!!! AND YOU WERE ON ONE PRETTY THING!!!!!

EEEEEEEEEEEE!

(OK Im breathing again...)

Good to 'see' you lady! The table looks great!

I found your lovely blog while looking for chalkboard/mirror projects. How do you get your fantastic ideas?! I wish my brain worked that way! When I see an old end table, sad to say, all I see is an old end table. I'm working on it though:)

Hi Adrienne! Welcome!

I always "feel bad" for sad looking objects/furniture as crazy as that sounds! I'm obsessed with trying to make them pretty again and giving them a new start on life! (yes, I have problems) but it makes me smile! Thanks for stopping by!
